cover to Canasta mix CD

Colin has created a mix CD that will be up for auction this Thursday, September 22nd at Smart Bar (3730 N. Clark St.). The auction is for Rock For Kids, a non-profit organization that provides support, inspiration and assistance to children that are homeless or in need. Many music notables have contributed mixes you can bid on, including Thax Douglas, Edith Frost, Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie, Johnny Marr of The Smiths, and many other local and international musicians, critics, etc. This is a 21 and over event, and the auction begins at 6PM with a suggested donation of $5 at the door. Hope to see you there!


As we prepare for upcoming shows at the CMJ Music Marathon in NYC and, later in the month, in Madison with indie buzz band Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, we thought we'd give you a first look at the cover and tracklisting for We Were Set Up:

We Were Set Up album cover
  1. Microphone Song
  2. Firenze
  3. Slow Down Chicago
  4. Impostors
  5. Shadowcat
  6. An Apology

  8. Just a Star
  9. Sympathetic Vibrations

"Slow Down Chicago" and "Just a Star" are re-recorded versions of songs that originally appeared on our Find the Time EP. The rest are all new, although that includes both songs we've been playing forever (like "Sympathetic Vibrations") and songs we've never (as of yet) performed even once ("All This Dust"). We hope you like it. Check out our online store to pre-order your copy (it will be officially released in November).
